The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 



Preface (Muqaddimah) 

All Praise is due to Allah. We praise Him, and seek His 
help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah, Most high, 
from the evils of our own selves and from our wicked 
deeds. Whomever Allah guides cannot be misguided, and 
whomever He leads astray cannot be guided. I testify that 
there is no true God worthy of being worshipped expect 
Allah, alone, without partner or associate. I further testify 
that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger (sallallahu 
alaihi Wasallam). May Allah's peace and blessings be 
upon him. 

To proceed: 

Verily, the best of speech is the Book of Allah, and the 
best of guidance is that of Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi 
Wasillam) and the evil of all matters is the innovation. 
Every innovation is a bid'ah, and every bid'ah is a 
misguidance, and every misguidance is in the Fire. 

In the religion of Islam after declaring the shahadah, the 
second most important pillar is the Salaah (prayer). 
Whenever the messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) 
used to pray, He used to raise both his hands up to his 
ears or shoulders during the first takbeer, before ruku' and 
after ruku, as is proven from the Mutawaatir ahadith. In 
common language, it is called "Rafa Yadain". 

The following Sahabas have reported doing rafa yadain:

Imam Astakhri, Hafidh Suyooti, Ashraf AN Thanwi 
Deobandi and others have affirmed to it, that every hadith 
that is reported from atleast ten narrators (Sahabas) is 
Mutawatir (See: Tadreeb al-Raawi 177/2, Kataf al-azhaar 
al-mutnathirah pg 21 , Bawader al-nawader pg 136). 
The books written on Mutawatir ahadith, mention 
especially the rafa yadain of before and after ruku' to be 
mutawatir in them. (See: Nazm al-Mutnathir min al-Hadith 
al-Mutawatir 96, 97 etc) 

The scholars who have declared the above mentioned 
rafa yadain to be Mutawatir, the name of some among 
those people of knowledge are as follows: 
Al-Katani, Ibn al-Jawzi, Ibn Haj'r, Zikriya al-Ansari, Al- 
Zubaydi and others. (See: Noorul Ainain pg 89, 90) 
On the issue of rafa yadain in salaah, many scholars have 
written books and articles, for example: 

1) Muhammad bin Nasr al-Marwazi's book, "Kitaab Rafa 
yadain". 

2) Abu Bakr al-Bazzar 

3) Abu Nai'm al-Asbahani, "Kitaab Rafa yadain fi salaah" 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

4) Taqi ud-Deen as-Subki, He wrote a risala on rata 
yadain. 

5) Ibn al-Qayyim. 

Among them the most prominent is this book of Imam 
Bukhari, "Juz Rata Yadain". 

It is my (i.e: Shaikh Zubair) fortunity that I found the best 
nuskha of Juz Rafa Yadain in the library of my teacher 
Shaikh Badee' ud-Deen Shah Rashdi Sindhi 
(rahimahullah), which is a photostate of the Nuskha 
Zahriya. I did its Tahqeeq, Takhreej, and Translation by 
holding this Nuskha to be real. 



The Narrators of this Nuskha (Version) 

A specialty of this Nuskha is that, from the copyist to Imam 
Bukhari, the whole chain is written in the beginning. From 
the ending words of the book, we come to know that, the 
one who says these words "Akhbarna Shaikh Al-lmam Al- 
Allama Al-Hafidh Al-Muttaqan baqiyah al-Salaf Zain ud- 
Deen Abul-Fadhal Abdurraheem bin al-Husain ibn Al- 

Iraqi " is none other than Hafidh ibn Hajr al-Asqalani. 

Now here we present a brief and succinct introduction to 
the narrators of this Nuskha: 

1) Hafidh Ibn Haj'r al-Asqalani "Al-Shafi'l, Al-lmam, Al- 
Allama, Al-Hafidh, Incomparabale of his time, Pride of 
the Period, Baqiyatul Huffaz, Mm al-AimmatuI A'laam, 
The Best among the Muhaqqiqeen, The seal of 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

Huffaz...." (Lakht al-alhaz by Ibn Fahd al-Hashmi al- 
Makki, Pg 326) 

He was born in 773 H and died in 852 H. He is the 
author of the great books like: Tahdheeb at- 
Tahdheeb, Taqreeb at-Tahdeeb, Lisaan al-Mizaan, 
Fath ul-Bari, Tabaqatul Mudalliseen, and Taghleeq al- 
Ta'leeq etc, and is on the top list of the Siqqah and 
Muttaqan Scholars. 

Here, let me tell you just as a note that, the title of Hanbali, 
Maliki, Shafii'l, and Hanafi etc with some of the names of 
the scholars does not mean at all that, those scholars are 
counted among the Muqallideen. It is narrated from many 
such scholars who are called Shafi'is that: 

"We are not the Muqallideen of (Imam) Shafi'l, rather 

(just) our (most of the) opinions match with their 

opinions." 

[Refs: Taqriraat al-Rafa'l Vol: 1 Pg: 1 1 , Al-Taheer wal 

Taqreer: Vol:3 Pg: 453, and Al-Nafi' al-Kabeer Pg:7] 



This is also known to common people that Taqleed is 
without evidence. It is written in one of the reliable books 
of Deobandis "Al-Qamoos al-Waheed" that: 

"Al-Taqleed (def): Following or copying someone blindly 
without thinking or without evidence" (Pg 1346) 

"Qallidu Fulanan: To do Taqleed, Following without 
evidence, following someone blindly, To Copy someone, 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

like "Qallid al-Qard al-lnsaan" like: A Monkey did Taqleed 
of a Human. (Same book Pg 346) 

Ashraf AN Thanwi said: 

"Taqleed is to accept the saying of an ummati without any 
eivdence. [Ref: Malfozaat Hakeem al-Ummat, Vol 3, Pg 
59] 

So, we came to know that this is the Taqleed which is 
condemned by Hafidh ibn Hajr, so there remains no 
question that He was the Muqallid of Imam Shafi'l. He has 
opposed Imam Shafi'l in many issues, for example: Imam 
Shafi'l used to consider "Ibraheem bin Muhammad bin Abi 
Yahya al-Aslama" to be Siqqah (Truthful and Trustworthy), 
while Hafidh Ibn Hajr, in his book, "Taqreeb at-Tahdheeb" 
wrote him as a "Matrook" (Rejected). 

Books of the Tabaqaat, meaning someone's name being 
in the Tabaqaat ash-Shafiyah, are not an evidence of him 
being a Muqallid. Infact, even Imam Shafi'l has been 
added in the Tabaqaat al-Maalikiya and Tabaqaat al- 
Hanbaliyah, and Imam Ahmed has been added in 
Tabaqaat ash-Shafiya, and Dawud az-Zaahiri too in 
Tabaqaat ash-Shafiya [see: Tanqeed as-Sadeed by 
Shaikh Badee' ud-deen shah rashdi sidhi], When infact, 
they all were Mujtahideen; no one among them was a 
Muqallid. It should be kept in mind that there is no reliable 
book called "Tabaqaat al-Muqallideen" present on earth, 
rather on the contrary, there are books like "Al-Aizaah fi 
radd alal Muqallideen" by Imam Qurtubi [See: Seer al- 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

A'laam al-Nabula] (A book on the refutation of 
Muqallideen). 

2) The second narrator is Hafidh Abu al-Fadhal Al- 
Iraaqi, born in 725 H, and died in 806 H. He is the 
author of some very beneficial books like: "Al-Alfiya fi 
Mustalah al-Hadith", "Al-Tanqeed wal Aizaah Sharh 
Muqaddimah ibn as-Salah" and "Al-Mughni 'an Hamal 
al-Asfaar fil Asfaar" etc. 

Hafidh ibn Fahd said about him: 

"Al-lmam, The unique Allamah, Al-Hujja, Al-Habar al- 
Naqid, The Umdah creation, Hafidh al-lslam, Unique of his 
time, The only one in his era, Outclassed in memorization, 
and The Master of his time." [Ref: Lahz al-Alhaz, Pg 220] 



3) Hafidh Noor ud-Deen al-Haithami, born in 735 H, and 
died in 807 H. 

He is the author of some beneficial books like: Majma' az- 
Zawaid, Mawarid ul-Zamaan, and Kashf al-Astaar etc. 

Hafidh Ibn Hajr said about him: 

"He is good, silent, famous, having sound state of nature 
(saleem fitrah), very strict in forbidding what is wrong, 
(and) never leaves the Qiyaam al-Layl." [Tabqaat al- 
Huffaz lil Dhahabi]. 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

4) Sayyidah Hafidhah Umm Muhammad Sat Al-Arab bint 
Muhammad died in 767 H. 
Hafidh Ibn Hajr said about her:

5) Imam Fakhr ud-Deen Ibn Al-Bukhari, born in 595 H, and 
died in 690 H. Hafidh Dhahabi said: 

512 ^132 £j^' ?**■*) 



6) Al-Shaikh Umar bin Muhammad bin Tabarzad, Born in 
516 H, died in 607 H. Some people have criticized him 
due to him being lazy in the matters of deen, but Hafidh 
Ibn Nuqtah said: 

[Ref : Al-Tanqeed Lima'rifat Rawat al-Sunan wal masanid, Pg 397] 



7) Al-Shaikh Ahmad bin Al-Hasan bin al-Bana, Born in 445 
H, and died in 527 H. Hafiz Ibn al-Jawzi said about him: 
"Wakana Siqqah" (He is Reliable). 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

[Ref: Al-Muntazam fi Tarikh al-Malook walkman (278/17)] 



8) Al-Shaikh Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Hasnoon al-Narsi, 
Born in 367 H, and died in 456 H. About him Hafidh 
Khtaeeb al-Baghdadi said: 

[Ref: Taarikh Baghdad 356/1] 



9) Al-Shaikh Muhammad bin Ahmed bin Moosa al- 
Malahmi, Born in 312 H, and died in 395 H. About Hafidh 
Dhahabi wrote: 

[Ref: Al-Abar fi Khabar min Ghabar 187/2] 



10) Mahmood bin Ishaaq al-Khaza'l, died in 332 H. He 

had three students. 

I) Al-Malahmi. 

li) Ahmed bin Muhammad Al-Husain Al-Raazi. 

lii) Ahmed bin AN bin Umro al-Sulaimani. 

Hafidh Ibn Hajr has graded one of the ahadith narrated 
from him to be Hasan. 

[Ref: Al-Mawafiqah al-Khabar Al-Khabarfi Takhreej 
ahadith al-Mukhtasir 417/1] 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

The authentication of a narration as Sahih or Hasan is the 
authentication of all its narrators in the chain, see Nasb ur- 
Raya by Zaylai (9264/3, 149/1) etc. 

Therefore, According to Hafidh Ibn Hajr, Mahmood bin 
Ishaaq is Siqqah, Suduq, and Hasanul Hadiith, and it 
should be kept in mind that no one said that Mahmood is 
Majhul. The saying of some Liars from 14th and 15th 
century declaring Mahmood to be a Majhul is rejected. 
Walhamdulillah. 



11) Shaikh ul-lslam, Al-lmam Al-Faqeeh, Al-Mujtahid, Al- 
Muhaddith, Abu Abdullah Al-Bukhari, born in 194 H, and 
died in 256 H. He is the author of some great and 
beneficial books like: Sahih Bukhari, Al-Taarikh al-Kabeer, 
Kitaab ad-Du'fa, etc. The decision of all the scholars about 
him is that: 



The student of his Student, Hafidh Ibn Hibban, has given 
the testimony that:

Meaning like Imam Bukhari, for more details see the book 
"Al-Asaneed al-Sahihah fi Akhbar al-lmam Abi Hanifah, Pg 
270. 



From this Tahqeeq, we came to know that, the Chain of 
"Juz Rafa Yadain" up to Imam Bukhari is absolutely Sahih 
and Proven. 



Explanation of the Tahqeeq 

1) The author has declared the Nuskha Zaahiriya to be the 
real one, because this is the most authentic and proven 
Nuskha. Ibn al-Salaah has put the following condition to 
copy from a Nuskha: 

"And that the copyist of the real Nuskha, should not be the 
one who copies wrongly, rather he should be the one who 
copies correctly, and makes the least mistakes. [Ref: 
Uloom ul-Hadith/ Muqaddimah Ibn al-Salah Pg 303]

2) Some phrases have been corrected by looking at 
another Nuskha. 

3) All the Ahadith have been classified, based on their 
Strong-ness and Weakness. 



4) A Brief, and concise Takhreej of the ahadith have also 
been done.

The Imam Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Isma'eel bin

The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

Ibraheem al-Bukhari informed us, he said: This book is a 
refutation on him (a Majhul (2)) who refused to do rafa 
yadain with ruku' and when raising the head after ruku' in 
the prayer. He, unnecessarily has kept it ambiguous on 
the non-Arabs, which is proven from the sayings and 
actions of the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him), and 
from the actions and narrations of his companions, and 
similarly from the actions of Tabi'een. 
(Our) Salaf has followed the authentic ahadith on this 
(issue), which have reached (with the sanads), through 
Some from Some (and) Siqqah from Siqqah to our 
Trustworthy Khalafs (Plural: Akhlaaf). May Allah have 
mercy on them (ie: the salaf and the Khalaf) and fulfil His 
promises with them. 

This Munker (rejector: of rafa yadain) has shown the 
turbidity of his chest and the narrowness of his Heart. He 
has shown his hatred and pejuration towards the Sunnah 
of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), and has 
shown his arrogance and enmity towards the Ahl us- 
Sunnah. The Bid'at (innovation) has been mixed in the 
meat, bones, and the brain of that Bid'ati (The rejector of 
rafa yadain), and the reason of his rejection is that, he 
after seeing the crowd of non-arabs (2) around him, has 
attributed himself with them, in deception. And Prophet 
(peace be upon him) said: "A group among my Ummah 
will continue to prevail over the truth (through evidences), 
and those who'd leave them will never be able to harm 
them, and neither will the opposition of their opposers will 
harm them." It will always remain continuous in the 
Sunnahs of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), 
so that his dead Sunnahs could be made alive. Unless if a 

16 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

mistake happens after the true intention (and without 
intending any opposition to the sunnah, then it is 
forgiveable), and that, example should be established in 
(the following of) the messenger of Allah (peace be upon 
him), because it is (also) legitimate on the creatures (Bani 
Adam and the Jinns) to follow the non-obligatory actions of 
the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), so that (this 
encouragement could be established that) whatever the 
Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) stops us from, it 
should be avoided, and whatever he commands us, it 
should be followed (completely), because Allah has 
commanded his creatures (to have faith in his 
Messenger), and has made it obligatory on them to follow 
him, and has made only his obedience to be necessary. 
The People's obedience to him is actually the obedience 
of Allah. He is the very gratuitous, and bounteous 
munificent. 

Allah (swt) said: "And whatever the Messenger gives you, 
accept it, and from whatever he forbids you, keep back." 
(Al-Hasher: 7) 

And said: "Whoever obeys the Messenger, he indeed 
obeys Allah." (Al-Nisa: 80) 

And said: "But no! by your Lord! they do not believe (in 
reality) until they make you a judge of that which has 
become a matter of disagreement among them, and then 
do not find any straitness in their hearts as to what you 
have decided and submit with entire submission." (Al-Nisa: 
65) 

17 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 



And said: "Let those beware who go against his order lest 
a trial afflict them or there befall them a painful 
chastisement. (Al-Noor: 63) 

And said: "Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah 
an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the 
latter day and remembers Allah much." (Al-Ahzaab: 21) 

Thus, May Allah have mercy on that person who, by 
following the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (peace be 
upon him) and by walking on his way, has asked for help 
from Allah. 

May Allah protect him from the evil of his spirit, and put his 
guidance in his heart. The evidence of this is the following 
saying of (Allah) the Mighty that: 

"Then whoever follows my guidance, he shall not go 
astray nor be unhappy" (Taha: 123)

Abdullah Bin Fadal al-Haashmi, from Abdurrehmaan bin 
Hurmuz Al-A'raj, from Ubaidullah bin abi Raafi', from 'AN 
bin Abi Taalib (May Allah pe pleased with him): Whenever 
Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) said the Takbeer 
for prayer (Salaah), he used to raise his hands, and when 
He was about to bow, and when standing up after rukoo', 
and when standing up after two units (Rakahs), He did the 
same (Rafa' Yadain). 



This narration is Hasan (Good) from its Isnaad (Chain). It is also present in Musnad 
Ahmed (93/1) and others. Tirmidhi (3423) graded it "Hasan Sahih", Ibn Khuzaymah 
(584) and Ibn Hibban (Umdatul Qari 277/5) added it in their Sahihain. Imam Ahmed and 
others have also graded it Sahih (Authentic). 

Its narrator "Abdurrehman Bin Abi Zanaad" is Saduq (Truthful) and Hasan ul Hadith 
(Good in Hadith).

The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

Haafidh Dhahabi said: His Narrations from before (the deterioration of his memory) are 
Hasan [ref: Seer a'laam al-Nabula, Vol 8, Pg 168, 70] 

Ibn al-Madini has graded this Narration to be "Qawi" (Strong). This narration is from 
before the deterioration of the memory of "Abdurrehmaan bin Abi Zanad" [see: Noorul 
'Ainain Pg 83, 84] 

Note #1 : In both the Versions (Nuskha), "Akhbarna Isma'eel bin Abi Awais" is present, 
while in some of the Versions (Nuskhas) it is Mistakenly hidden the word "Yoonus" 
instead of "Awais" which is not correct 

Note #2: From this Hasan hadith we came to know that in the different Asaaneed 
(Chains) of the same hadith, the Phrase "Qaama min as-Sajdatain" (Standing up after 
two Sujud/prostrations) is present, this phrase actually means "Qaama min ar- 
Raka'tain" (Standing up after two Rakas: Units). This is the Tahqeeq (research) of Imam 
Tirmidhi and other Muhadditheen. In the Arabic Lughat (Dictionary) "Sajdatain" (two 
Sujud) is also taken to mean "Raka'tain" (two Units of prayer). 

Note #3: According to the Muhadditheen the opposition of Rata' Yadain is not proven 
from Ali (May Allah pe pleased with him). The narration present in Al-illal of Daraqutni is 
Munqata' (Disconnected). 

Presenting the narrations of Muhammad bin Hasan al-Shaibani in this matter is not 
right, because Muhammad bin Hasan according to the Muhadditheen is Strongly 
Crtiticized. Imam Yahya bin Ma'een has declared him to be "Kazzab" (Liar) [See: Lisaan 
al-Mizaan (122/5), Kitaab ad-Du'fa lil Ukayli (52/4), and Tarikh Baghdad (42031/5). His 
Tautheeq is not proven from any of the trustworthy

Similarly; it is reported from the seventeen Ashaab 
(Companions) of Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam) 
that they used to raise their Hands before and after going 
to ruku' (bowing). Among them are: Abu Qatadah al- 
Ansari, Abu Asaid as-Saa'idi al-Badari, Muhammad bin 
Muslimah al-Badari, Sahl bin Sa'ad as-Saa'idi, Abdullah 
bin Umar bin Al-Khattab, Abdullah bin Abbas bin Abdul- 
Muttalib al-Haashimi, Servant of Rasulullah (sallallahu 
'alaihi wasallam), Anas bin Malik, Abu Hurairah, Abdullah 
bin Umro bin AI-'Aas, Abdullah bin az-Zubair, Waa'il Bin 
Hujr, Maalik bin al-Huwairas, Abu Moosa al-Asha'ri, Abu 
Humaid as-Saa'idi, AN bin Abi Taalib, Umm Darda and 
Umar bin Al-Khattab. (May Allah be pleased with them all). 
Hasan and Humaid bin Halaal said: The Ashaab 
(Companions) of rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) 
used to do Rafa' Yadain (before and after ruku'). Hence; 
the narrator didn't exclude any of the companions of the 
prophet (Peace be upon him). According to the People of 
Knowledge, it is not proven from any of the companions of 
the prophet (Peace be upon him) that they left Rafa' 
Yadain. (raising hands before and after ruku in prayer). 
Rafa' Yadain is narrated from a huge number of the 
companions of the prophet (Peace be upon him) as we 
have stated above. Similarly; a huge number of narrations 
have reached to us from the Scholars of Makkah, Hijaaz, 
Iraaq, Shaam, Basra, and Yemen, and It is narrated from 
a huge number of the people of Kharasaan, Among them 
are: Sa'eed bin Jubair, 'Ataa bin Abi Ribaah (Teacher of 
Imam Abu Hanifah), Mujaahid, Qaasim bin Muhammad, 
Saalim bin Abdullah bin Umar bin al-Khattab, Umar bin 
Abdul 'Azeez, Nu'maan bin abi Ayaash, Hasan (Basri), Ibn

Sireen, Tawoos, Makhool, Abdullah bin Dinar, Naafi', 
Ubaidullah bin Umar, Al-Hasan bin Muslim, Qais bin Sa'd 
and from many others, and similarly it is narrated from 
Umm Darda that she used to do Rafa' Yadain, and 
Abdullah bin al-Mubarak also used to do Rafa' Yadain, 
and similarly, the students of Ibnul Mubarak also used to 
do Rafa Yadain, and among them are: Ali bin Al-Hasan, 
Abdullah bin Uthmaan, and Yahya bin Yahya. 
And among the Muhadditheen of Bukhara (who used to do 
rafa' yadain) are: 'Esaa bin Moosa, Ka'b bin Sa'eed, 
Muhammad bin Salaam, Abdullah bin Muhammd al- 
Musnadi, and countless other (Scholars) used to do rafa' 
yadain. There is no Ikhtilaaf in our above mentioned 
scholars. 

And Abdullah bin Az-Zubair, Ali bin Abdullah, Yahya bin 
Ma'een, Ahmed bin Hanbal, and Ishaaq bin Raahwaih 
used to grade those ahadeeth to be Proven and Truth 
(Sahih) which mentioned Rafa' Yadain from the Prophet 
(peace be upon him), and these people were among the 
biggest Scholars of their Times. 

And Similarly it has been narrated from Abdullah bin Umar 
bin Al-Khattaab.

'AN bin Abdullah informed us, Sufyaan (Bin Uyainah) 
narrated to us, Zuhri narrated to us, from Saalim bin 
Abdullah, from His Father (Abdullah bin Umar), who said: 
"I saw Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), He used to 
raise his hands when saying Takbeer, and when going to 
ruku', and when rising from Ruku', and He did not use to 
do it (rafa' yadain) between the two Sujud: prostrations". 
AN bin Abdullah, who was the greatest scholar of his time, 
said: Due to the narration of "An Zuhri, An Saalim, An 
Abdullah", it is necessary for every muslim to do rafa' 
yadain. 

This narration is rigorously authentic. Imam Muslim, Imam Tirmidhi, and others have 
graded it Sahih (Authentic). 

Imam Ibn Abdul Bar said: There is no criticism (of any muhaddith) on this Hadith. [Al- 
Istazkaar]. 

The Narrator "Ali Bin Abdullah al-Madini" in this Hadith, is one of the biggest Imams of 
Ahlus-Sunnah, and he is among the outstanding Siqqah (Trustworthy) narrators of 
Hadith. 

Some liars of the contemporary era has declared him Shi'aa, which is absolutely not 
true. Hafidh Dhahabi in his Mizan al-l'tidaal has excellently defended Imam al-Madini, 
and has declared all the Criticisms on him to be Mardood (rejected), walhamdulillah

Musaddad narrated to us, Yahya bin Sa'eed narrated to 
us, Abdul Hamid bin Ja'far narrated to us, Muhammad bin 
Umro narrated to us, He said: I found Abu Humaid (As- 
Saa'idi) among the ten companions of the prophet (peace 
be upon him). One among them was (also) Abu Qatadah 
bin Rab'ai. He (Abu Humaid) was saying: "I know the 
prayer of rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) more than 
all of you". They (the ten ashaab) said: "How? By Allah, 
you neither became a sahabi before us, nor did you get 
the companionship of the prophet (peace be upon him) 
more than us!" (Abu Humaid) said: "Infact, I have seen him 
i.e: the prophet (peace be upon him) performing salaah". 
The companions said: "then describe it to us". (Abu 
Humaid) said: Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used 
to raise his hands when standing up for prayer, and before 
going to ruku' and after standing from ruku' and after the

two units (of prayer), He (peace be upon him) used to do 
the same (rata' yadain). 



This Hadith is Sahih (Authentic). Ibn Khuzaimah, Ibn Hibban, Ibn al-Jarood, Tirmidhi, 
and Ibn Taymiyyah waghariruhum graded it Sahih. 

Abdul Humaid bin Ja'far is the narrator of Sahih Muslim, and Siqqah and Suduq 
according to the Jumhoor of Muhadditheen. Zayla'l Hanafi has also agreed with it [Nasb 
ar-Raya 344/1]

Imam Bukhari said: 

Hence, Abdullah bin Muhammad narrated this hadith to 
me from him (Abu Asim), Abu Aasim checked it on my 
request: Abdul Hamid bin Ja'far narrated to us, 
Muhammad bin Umro narrated to us, He said: I found Abu 
Humaid (As-Saa'idi) among the ten companions of the 
prophet (peace be upon him). One among them was (also) 
Abu Qatadah bin Rab'ai. He (Abu Humaid) was saying: "I 
know the prayer of rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) 
more than all of you". Then he narrated the similar Hadith 

26 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

(as mentioned above), then all of them (companions) said: 
You have said the truth (prophet used to pray like that). 



Note #1 : Some people present this same hadith from Abu Humaid as-Saa'idi in 
reference to Sahih Bukhari, where the mentioning of Rafa' Yadain is not present, to be 
their evidence of not doing rafa' yadain. So, the answer is that, the aforementioning of 
something is not considered the Daleel (evidence) against mentioning. Therefore, 
criticizing the Hadith which mentions Rafa' Yadain, from the narration of Sahih Bukhari, 
which does not mention Rafa' yadain, is not Correct. The addition of Siqqah is 
acceptable according to all the Muhadditheen.

for prayer and raised his hands, then, when He said the

and put his hands on his knees. 



The Isnad of this Hadith is Hasan. Ibn Khuzaimah (589, 608, 637, 640, 689), Ibn Hibban 
(494), and Tirmidhi (260) has graded it Sahih (Authentic). 

Muhammad bin Yahya al-Zahli said: Whoever hears this Hadith and then doesn't do

Ubayd bin Ya'aish narrated to us, Yoonus bin Bukair 
narrated to us, Ibn Ishaaq narrated to us, AI-'Abbas bin 
Sahl as-Saa'idi narrated to us, He said: I was with Abu 
Qatadah, Abu Asaid, and Abu Humaid in the Market. All of 
them were saying that I know the prayer of rasulullah 
(sallallahu alaihi wasallam) more than all of you, so they 
said to Abu Humaid to perform the salaah. Thus, He said 
the takbeer, then recited (the quraan), then said the

Salaah of rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) rightly. 



This narration is Hasan. Ibn Ishaaq is a Mudallis, but He has affirmied the hearing in 
Sahih Ibn Khuzaimah. 

Note: This Zaahiriya Nuskha of Juz Rafa' Yadain contains "Ibn Ishaaq" which is 
authentic as mentioned in Sahih ibn Khuzaimah also, while in the other Indian Nuskha 
of Juz Rafa' Yadain, it is mistakenly written to be "Abu Ishaaq" which is not correct.

Abul Walid Hishaam bin Abdul Malik, and Sulaiman bin

Qatadah, from Nasr bin Aasim, from Maalik bin Huwairas, 
who said: When Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said the 
takbeer (for prayer), he raised his hands, and when he 
went to ruku', and when he raised up from ruku' (He did 
the same). 



Its Isnad is Sahih. Imam Muslim has narrated it in his Sahih, see hadith # 66. 

29

Note #1 : It is proven in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim that Abu Qilaba Tabi'l (Siqqah) 

saw Maalik bin Huwairus (after the death of the prophet (peace be upon him)) doing 

rafa' yadain before and after ruku'. 

Note # 2: The allegation of Nabiyat on Abu Qilabah, and of Kharijiat on Nasr bin Aasim 

is Mardood (Rejected). 

Note # 3: It is not proven from Maalik bin Huwairus in any of the Authentic narrations, to 

do rafa' yadain in the Sujud. The narration of Sunan Nisai, due to the Tadlees of 

Qatadah, is Da'eef. This narration from Qatadah is not narrated from Shu'bah but from 

Sa'eed bin Abi Arooba, see: Sunan Nisai (672).

Muhammad bin Abdullah bin Hoshab narrated to us, Abdul

from Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), He said: 
Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) used to raise his 
hands in ruku' 



The Isnad of this narration, due to the tadlees of Humaid at-Taweel, is Da'eef. Because 
Humaid At-Taweel was a Famous Mudallis. In Musnad Abi Ya'la, this narration is 
narrated with these words, "I saw rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), He used to 
start the prayer by doing rafa' yadain before and after ruku'", Since this Matn is proven 
from the other Narrations, therefore, with these words and matn, this hadith of Humaid 
at-taweel, in the light of Shawahid, is Authentic. Walhamdulillah. 

Note: Abdul Wahhab as-Saqafi is declared to be Siqqah and Suduq by the Jumhur of 
Muhadditheen. Therefore, Even if he is alone in narrating, his Hadith would be 
considered Sahih or Hasan.

me, He said: I prayed with Nabi (sallallahu alaihi

when intended to bow, and after bowing. 



Its Sanad is Sahih. Nisai has also narrated it from Qays bin Saleem. 

Imam Bukhari said: 

And Abu Bakr Al-Nahshali narrated with the Isnad of, An 

Aasim bin Kulaib, An Abeeh, that Verily AN (may Allah be

pleased with him) raised his hands in he beginning of the 
prayer, then He did not do it. 



According to the Muhadditheen, this Narration is Da'eef and not proven. Imam Shafi'l 
said: "Wala Yasbut" (and it is not proven) [sunan al-Baihaqi 81/2]. Imam Daarimi and 
others has also criticized it. Therefore, the authentication of some Mutassib people of 
this Hadith is not correct. It is obvious that the Muhadditheen know the Health and the 
weakness of their narrated ahadeeth more than any one.

(The saying of Imam Bukhari continues...) And the Hadith 
of Ubaidullah (of doing rafa yadain) is more Authentic, 
Moreover, In this Hadith of Kulaib the doing of Rafa 
Yadain is not mentioned. And the Hadith of Ubaidullah (of 
doing rafa yadain) is Witness. Hence, if two people narrate 
from a Muhaddith. If One (of them) says: "I say, He has 
done this", and the other says, "I have not seen him doing 
this". So the one who said, that "I have seen him doing it", 
is the witness, and the one who said that, "He has not 
done this work", He is not the witness because He did not 
preserve it. 

And Similarly (this is what) Abdullah bin Az-Zubair said to 
those two Witnesses, who had given witness to him. When 
a person said: Fulaan person owes thousand darham to 
fulan person, and the other two witnesses said that He 
does not owe anything to anyone, so Abdullah bin Az- 
Zubair accepted the witnesses of those two people, and 
neutralized the other witness. 

And Similarly, when Bilal said: "I have seen Nabi 
(sallallahu alaihi wasallam) performing salah in the 
Ka'bah", and Al-Fadal bin Abbas said: "He (pbuh) did not 
pray in the Ka'bah", so people took the saying of Bilal who 
was the witness, and leave the saying of the other person, 
who said: "He (pbuh) did not pray in the Ka'bah", because 
this person did not preserve it. 

And Abdurrehman bin Mahdi said: I presented the Hadith 
of Al-Nahshali from Aasim bin Kulaib, to Sufyaan ath- 
Thawri, He rejected it.

Abdullah bin Yoosuf narrated to us, Maalik (bin Anas) 
infomed us, from Ibn Shihab (Az-Zuhri), from Saalim bin 
Abdullah, from his Father (Abdullah bin Umar), Verily 
whenever Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi walsallam) used to 
start the Prayer, He used to raise both his hands up to his 
shoulders, and when he used to do Ruku' saying Takbeer, 
and when rising up from Ruku', He would raise them (the 
hands) likewise, and He did not do it (rafa yadain) in the 
Sujud. 



This narration is present in Sahih Bukhari (735). 

In Muwatta Imam Malik (narrated by Ibn al-Qaasim, and Muhammad al-Shaibani), this 

hadith is present with almost the same words and meaning. 

Note # 1 : The opposition of Rafa' yadain is not proven from Imam Malik in any of the 
authentic reports. Al-Mudawwanah al-Kubra is an unauthentic, and without Sanad Book. 

Note # 2: Doing Rafa' Yadain is proven from Imam Malik through several Authentic 
Isnads, e.g: Al-Tamheed.

Al-Humaidi narrated to us, Al-Waleed bin Muslim informed

from Naafi', Verily whenever Ibn Umar would see a (jaahil) 
person not raising his hands before and after ruku'. He 
used to beat him with stones. 



Its Isnad is Sahih. Imam Nawawi graded it Sahih in his book "Al-Majmoo' Sharh al- 
Madhab" (Vol 3, Pg 405) 

From this narration, We came to know that beating someone who opposes the sunnah 
is also permissible, However, this should be done by someone who is an 'Ulul Amar like 
Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with him). 

Here, what is meant by the Ignorant person is a Majhul (unknown), who is not a Sahabi.

Umar doing rafa' yadain except in the first Takbeer" 

And the people of Knowledge (scholars) has narrated from 
him (Ibn Umar: that he used to do rafa' yadain), Verily He 
(Abu Bakr bin Ayyash) did not preserve it from Ibn Umar, 
Except (If it be said that) Ibn Umar forgot it, just like some 
people forget one thing after another in the prayer. Just 
like (one time) Umar forgot to recite (the Quraan) in the 
prayer, and Just like (how) the companions of the prophet 
(peace be upon him) sometimes used to forget in the 
prayer and they (mistakenly) used to say Salaam in the 
second or third rakah. 

Don't you know that Ibn Umar used to hit those people 
with stones who did not use to do rafa yadain? So how

can Ibn Umar abandon this practice which He used to 
teach to other people, and which He saw Prophet (peace 
be upon him) doing it ! 



The whole above answer of Imam Bukhari is "ilzaami" (retaliartory). While, the reality is, 
that this Hadith of Abu Bakr bin Ayyash is Mardood (rejected) according to Imam Yahya 
bin Ma'een and Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal. For more information on this hadith, see the 
book "Noorul Ainain" pg 131 ,1 36.

Imam Bukhari said: 

Imam Yahya bin Ma'een said: The Hadith of Abu Bakr (bin 

Ayyash) from Husain, is his Mistake, which has no reality. 



Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal said about this Hadith, "Huwa Baatil" (It is Baatil) [Masail Ibn 
Hani vol 1 , pg 50]. 

Abu Bakr bin Ayyash is declared to be Weak in Hadith due to his Memory. 

In Sahih Bukhari, all his narrations are depended on Mutaabi'aat, and Shawaahid 
(meaning; all his ahadeeth in Sahih Bukhari are authentic because they are supported 
through other authentic chains) 

Imam Abu Nu'aim al-Fadal bin Dukain al-Kufi said: Among our teachers, no one makes 
mistakes more than Abu Bakr bin Ayyash [Tarikh Baghdad Vol 14, ph 378, Sanad 
Sahih]

I took permission from him (Umar bin Abdul Aziz), so He 
said: He (Abdullah bin Aamir) is the one who beat his 
brother for doing rafa yadain (in prayer), (while) In 
Madinah we were taught to do rafa yadain very strictly, in 
our childhood. Thus, He did not give him permission (to 
come in). 



Its Isnad is Sahih. 

Note: In the real Qalmi Nuskha of Juz Rafa Yadain, "Umro bin Muhajir" is present. 
While in the Indian and other ordinary Nuskha, "Umar bin Muhajir" is present, which is a 
Mistake of the Nasikh. For more information: See: [Al-Tamheed (vol 9, pg 210), Musnad

Imam Bukhari said: 

Zaida (bin Qudamah), by following the Salaf, did not use 
to narrate ahadith to anyone except the people of Ahlus- 
Sunnah. A tribe from the Murji'ah=(People of Innovation) 
of Balakh came to Muhammad bin Yoosuf in Shaam, so 
He (Muhammad bin Yoosuf) tried to exile them from there, 
until they (muji'ah) repented (from their wrong Aqeedah), 
and came towards the way of As-Sunnah. 

We have seen many Scholars who used to make the 
people of Innovation repent (from their wrong practices), 



41 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

Hence, If they would repent from it (it'd be good), 
otherwise, they (scholars) would get them out of their 
Majaalis (meetings). 

Abdullah bin az-Zubair told Sulaiman bin Harb, when He 
was a Judge in Makkah, to make some people of Rai 
(opinion) obedient (to quran and Sunnah), so He 
(Sulaiman) did so. (After that) They=(Ahlur-Rai) were not 
able to give Fataawa, until they were thrown out of 
Makkah.

Maalik bin Isma'eel narrated to us, Shareek narrated to us, 
from Laith, from 'Ataa', He said: I saw Ibn Abbas, Ibn 
Zubair, Abu Sa'eed (Al-Khudri), and Jaabir (bin Abdullah) 
raising their hands in the beginning of prayer, and in ruku' 



It is a Hasan Hadith. Its Isnad, due to Shareek and Laith, is Weak, but rata Yadain is 
proven from Ibn Zubair and Ibn Abbas (Sunan al-Baihaqi 73/2). The narration of Jaabir 
is present in Sunan Ibn Maja and Musnad Saraj with Sahih Sanad. It is proven from 
Sa'eed bin Jubair that Shabah Karaam used to do rafa Yadain before and after ruku (Al- 
Baihaqi 75/2), and Abu Sa'eed is among the Sahaba. 
Therefore, The above Hadith in the light of Shawahid is Hasan. 



42 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

Note: The opposition of Rafa Yadain is not proven from Ibn Umar and Abu Sa'eed. The 
Hadith which proves their opposition to rafa yadain contains "Atiyah AI-'Awfi", Who is a 
Weak, Shi'aa and a Mudallis Narrator [see: Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb and others], 
therefore, the narration of Nasb ur-Rayaa is Munker-o-Mardood.

Imam Bukhari said: 

If the Hadith of Muhahid (from Abu Bakr bin Ayyash) gets 
proven, that He didn't see Ibn Umar doing rafa yadain, 
even then the ahadeeth of Tawoos, Saalim, Naafi', 
Muharib bin Dathaar, and Ibn Zubair will be more 
authentic, because they have seen him (doing rafa 
yadain), (second reason is that) He (ibn Umar) has 
narrated it (Rafa Yadain) from rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi 
wasallam), Thus, He would not go against the Prophet. 
Moreover, The scholars of Makkah, Madinah, Yemen, and 
Iraaq has narrated that they used to do rafa yadain. 

It has been discussed above that the hadith of Mujahid is not Proven.

Intact, Verily Musaddad narrated to us, Yazeed bin Zuree'

Hasan (Al-Basri), He said: Whenever the companions of 
the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to go to ruku' and 
raise their heads from it, they used to raise their hands as 
if they (the Hands) are fans. 



Sahih. 

Note # 1 : In the real Version (Makhtutah), It contains "Shu'bah" while in the other 
Version, It contain "Sa'eed (bin Abi Aroobah)", which is not correct. 

Note # 2: This Narration is Sahih with its Shawahid (other chains). 

Note # 3: The Narration of Shu'bah from Qatadah is always Sahih, therefore, the 
objection of Qatadah's Tadlees is rejected. 

Note # 4: The Narration of Abu Dawud (vol 1 , pg 1 10), in which the words "lla 
Sudooruhum" (to do rafa' yadain up to the chest in the beginning of the prayer) are 
present, is Da'eef due to the Tadlees of Shareek al-Kufi.

The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 



Imam Bukhari said: 

Some non-knowledgeable people have taken evidence 
from this Hadith narrated from Wakee', from Al-A'mash, 
from Al-Musayyib bin Raafi', from Tameem bin Tarfah, 
from Jaabir bin Samurah, He said: The Messenger of 
Allah (may peace be upon him) came to us and we were 
raising our hands, so He said: "How is it that I see you 
lifting your hands like the tails of headstrong horses? 
Be calm in prayer" (1). This riwayat is only about 
Tashahhud not the Qiyaam. 

Some people (in prayer) used to say salam to others 
(while pointing their hands), so Nabi (sallallahu alaihi 
wasallam) forbade them to raise their hands in 
Tashahhud. One who has even a little knowledge, does 
not take evidence from this Hadith (for tark-e-Rafa 
yadain). This is famous among all the scholars and there 
is not Ikhtilaaf (difference). And if what has been said 
about it was true, then even the Rafa yadain of first 
Takbeer (in prayer) and the rafa yadain of Eidain (two 
eids) would have become forbidden because this Hadith 
does not specifiy any rafa yadain, and this has been 
explained in the coming Hadith. (End Quote)

(1): The Hadith of Jaabir bin Samurah above is Sahih. 

It was also narrated by Imam Muslim, There is the indication of "Wa hum 
Qa'oodun" (and they were sitting) in the Hadith of Tamim bin Tarfah (Musnad Ahmed 
Vol 5, Pg 93) 

Muhammad Taqi Uthmani (Deobandi) said: "The Justice is that, the Hanafiyyah taking 
evidence from this Hadith is weak" (Dars Tirmidhi Vol 2, Pg 36). Here "Hanafiyyah 
means both Deobandi and Brailwi sects, when In reality none of them is a Hanafi in true 
sense. 

Mahmud Hasan Deobandi has the same view about this Hadith, as does Taqi Uthmani 
(Al-warad al-Shazi Pg 63 Taqareer Shaikhul Hind pg 65)

Abu Nu'aim narrated to us, Mis'ar narrated to us, from 
Ubaydullah bin al-Qibtiyyah, He said: I heard Jaabir bin 
Samurah saying that: we were praying behind the Prophet 
(peace be upon him), so we said Assalam-o-Alaikum, 
Assalam-o-Alaikum (to both sides), and Mis'ar pointed 
with his hand, thus the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: 
What's wrong to these people, they are pointing with their 
hands as if they are the tails of a Mischievious Horses, It is 
enough for you that everyone put his hands on his/her 
thigh, and then say salam on your Brother, left and right.o) 

Imam Bukhari said: 

The man who says such thing about the Prophet (peace 

be upon him) which he didn't say, Allah (swt) said: "And let 

those beware who go against his order, lest a trial afflict 

them or there befall them a painful chastisement." (Al-Noor

Muhammad bin Yoosuf narrated to us, Sufyan narrated to 
us, from Abdul Malik, He said: I asked Sa'eed bin Jubair 
about rata yadain in salaah, so He said: "This is the thing 
with which you beautify your prayer." 

It is Sahih. 

Imam Baihaqi has narrated it with Sahih Isnad from Sa'eed bin Jubair in his "Al-Sunan 
al-Kubra (75/2)" that Sahabah Karaam used to Rafa Yadain before and after ruku'. 

Imam Nawawi has also graded it Sahih (Al-Majmoo' Sharh al-Madhab (405/3). 

The narrator of Baihaqi "Ya'qoob bin Yoosuf al-Akhram" was a Famous Imam and 
Siqqah. (See: Sunan Kubra Baihaqi vol 5, pg 230), and (Noorul Ainain pg 126) 
Therefore, the saying of some contemporary Ahnaaf that Ya'qoob was not reliable is 
Rejected.

used to say the Takbeer (Allahu Akbar) with both his

when saying "Sami allahu liman hamidah" and raising his 
head from ruku' and when standing up straight (after the

Did Ibn Umar used to do the first rafa yadain (of Takbeer) 
higher than the others (rafa yadain), so He said: "No" 

It's Isnad is Sahih. 

Note # 1 : This narration is also present in Musnad Abdur-razzaq (2520) 

Note # 2: Mahmud bin Ghailan was the Extreme Siqqah Imam. Saying that He was 
Majhul is wrong. (See: Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb etc) 



(Imam) Abu Abdullah (al-Bukhari) said: 
All the scholars of Hijaaz and Iraaq, that we have found, 
amongst them are: Abdullah bin Zubair (al-Humaidi), AN

Ahmed bin Hanbal, and Ishaaq bin Rahwaih. These were 
the (biggest) scholars of their times. It is not proven from 
any of the (above) scholars, that they had the knowledge 
of not doing rafa yadain narrated from the prophet (peace 
be upon him) or from any of his Sahabah that they did not 
rafa yadain.

They both said: "When any amongst you, says the 
Takbeer (Allahu Akbar) for prayer, then he should raise his 
hands while saying Takbeer, and while raising his head 
from Ruku'" 

And Ibn Sireen used to say: "It (rafa yadain) is from the 
completeness of the prayer". 

It's Isnad is Da'eef. 

Hishaam bin Hisaan is a Mudallis and is narrating from ('An). 

Note # 1 : Abdullah here means "Abdullah bin Al-Mubarak", Therefore, the sayings of 
some liars that Abdullah here is "Abdullah bin Lahi'a" is wrong.

Az-Zuhri, from Saalim bin Abdullah, Certainly Ibn Umar 
said: I saw Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). When he 
used to say the beginning Takbeer in the prayer, He used 
to raise both his hands up to his shoulders while saying 
Takbeer, and when He used to say the Takbeer for Ruku' 
He used to do the same, and when he used to say "Sami 
Allahu liman Hamida", He used to do the same, and used 
to say "Rabbana Lakal Hamd" (meanwhile), and when he 
used to do the prostration, He used not to do it then, and 



67 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

when he used to raise his head from the prostration, even 
then he would not do it. 

It's Sahih. 

This narration is present in Sahih Bukhari (738) and others. 

Zuhri has affirmed hearing from Saalim, in this book also, See Hadith # 38 



Imam Bukhari said: 

And Ibn ul-Mubarak used to do rata yadain, and He, 
according to our knowledge, was the biggest scholar of his 
time. Thus, the non-knowledgeable person, who doesn't 
have the knowledge of the Salaf, need to follow ibn al- 
Mubarak (with-daleel) in which (Ibn ul-Mubarak) has 
obeyed Rasool (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), his Sahabah, 
and the Tabi'een. This is better for him than, that he goes 
on proving things from the non-knowledgeable people. 



The Fact that Imam Ibnul-Mubarak used to do rata yadain is proven from the Mutawaatir 
reports, see: Sunan Tirmidhi.

Ali Bin Abdullah narrated to us, Sufyaan narrated to us, He 
said: Umro (bin Dinaar) said: Ibn Umar said: I remember 
when (my father) Umar became a Muslim, so (Kaafir and 
Mushrik) people started saying: Umar became infidel, 
Umar became Infidel, then 'Aasi bin Wa'il came and said: 
Umar became Infidel, Umar became Infidel, so what? I am 
his neighbor (and Helper), so people left him (Umar). 

Imam Bukhari has also narrated it in Sahih Bukhari (3865) with the same Isnad. 



Imam Bukhari said: 

Sa'eed bin al-Musayyab said: If I were to give the witness 
of someone being a "Jannati", then I would've given the 
witness of Ibn Umar, and Jaabir bin Abdullah (al-Ansari) 
said: There was no one who adhered to the Sunnah of the 
Prophet (peace be upon him) and followed it, more than 
Ibn Umar. 

And the criticizing of some non-knowledgeable people on 
Waa'il bin Hujr (is rejected). Verily Waa'il bin Hujr was 
among the sons of the King of Yemen. When he came to 
the Prophet (peace be upon him), He honored him and 
gave him a piece of Land, and sent Mu'awiyah bin Abi 
Sufyaan with him.

Hafs bin Umar narrated to us, Jaami' bin Matar narrated to 
us, from Alqamah bin Wa'il, He narrated from his Father 
(Wa'il bin Hujr), Verily the Prophet (peace be upon him) 
had given him (Wa'il) (the area of) Hidhr Maut. 

Its Isnad is Sahih, Imam Tirmidhi (1381) has graded it Hasan. 

Imam Bukhari said: 

The story of Wa'il bin Hujr (that Prophet (pbuh) foretold his 
coming to madinah) is famous among the scholars. 
He used to visit the Prophet (peace be upon him) very 
often, and if something would've been proven from the 
chain of Ibn Mas'ood, Bara' (bin Azib), and Jaabir (bin 
Samurah), then it would be in the rejection of these non- 
knowldegable people. They say that "if something gets 
proven from the Prophet (peace be upon him) which our 
elders (hadith rejectors) did not use to do, then it would 
not be accepted". These people only take the Hadiths 
which are on the accordance of their opinions. 
And Wakee' said: Whoever strives to attain a Hadith, Just 
as it reaches (him), is a Sunni, and whoever strives to get 
a Hadith for the corroboration of his Desires, He is a 
Bid'ati (innovator). 

Meaning, a man should throw away his desires in front of 
the Hadith, when it is proven to be Sahih. And the Hadith 
should not be rejected due to wrong accounts.

And it is mentioned from the Prophet (peace be upon him) 

that (he said) "No one amongst you can be a believer until 

his desires are in accordance with the Deen that I have 

brought (1). 

And Ma'mar (bin Rashid) said: According to the people of 

knowledge, those (muslims) that have passed before, 

were more knowledgeable (than the laters), but according 

to these (Hadith rejectors), the later people, are more 

knowledgeable than the formers! 

And (Abdullah) bin al-Mubarak said: I was praying along 

with Nu'man bin Thabit (Abu Hanifah), then I did rafa 

yadain, He (Abu Hanifah) said to me: "I was afraid that you 

would fly away". So I said: "When I didn't fly at first (rafa 

yadain), then I couldn't have flied at the second (rafa 

yadain) also. 

Wakee' said: May Allah have mercy on Ibn al-Mubarak, he 

was quick-witted, thus the other person became surprised 

(and he couldn't answer) 

This is usually the condition of those people who are 

active in their misguidance, when they are not followed. (2) 



(1): This narration due to the Tadlees of Hishaam bin Hisaan, and due to the Jahaalat of 
"Ghairah" is Da'eef, However, common evidences are in its accordance. 

Note: This narration is present in Kitaab as-Sunnah by ibn abi asim (15) and Zammul 
Qalam by Al-Harwi (96) and by others with its Isnad. 

(2): The Narration of the dialogue between Imam Ibn al-Mubarak and Abu Hanifah is 
present in the following books with the Sahih Isnad:

Hanbal (#518), Taarikh Baghdad (vol 3, Pg 405-406), Al-Muntazim by Ibn al-Jawzi (Vol

Abul-Nu'man narrated to us, Abdul Wahid bin Ziyaad Ash-

us, He said: I saw Abdullah bin Umar when he used to 
start the prayer, he used to raise his hands and say 
Takbeer (Allahu Akbar), and when he would intend to do 
the ruku', and raise his head from the ruku (he'd do the

Its Isnad is Sahih. 

Abul-Nu'man Muhammad bin Fadal 'Arim had his memory deteriorated at the last part

Therefore, all the narrations of Abul-Nu'man are Sahih. 

Hafiz Dhahabi said: "When his memory deteriorated at the end of his age, He didn't 
narrate anything". It should be kept in mind that Imam Bukhari narrated Hadiths from 
Abul-Nu'man long before his memory deteriorated. Walhamdulillah.

Al-Ayyaash bin al-Waleed narrated to us, Abdul A'laa 
narrated to us, Ubaidullah narrated to us, From Naafi', 
from Ibn Umar: Whenever Ibn 'Umar started the prayer 
with Takbir, he used to raise his hands: whenever he 
bowed, he used to raise his hands (before bowing) and 
also used to raise his hands on saying, "Sami a-l-lahu 
Liman hamida". Ibn 'Umar said: "The Prophet used to do 
the same." 

It's a Sahih Hadith. It is also present in Sahih Bukhari (739). 

Note # 1 : The Name "Ayyaash" is written in the real Qalmi Nuskha, who is "Ibn al- 
Waleed", and is the famous teacher of Imam Bukhari, see Sahih Bukhari, and 
Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb etc. Whereas, in the Indian Nuskha and some other Nuskhas of 
Juz Rafa Yadain mistakenly, "Haddathana Al-Abbas bin Al-Waleed" has been written, 
which is wrong. This text, which is taken from the ancient Zaahiriya Nuskha of Juz Rafa 
Yadain is the most authentic. Walhamdulillah. 

Note # 2: The Jarah of Imam Abu Dawud on this Narration is Mardood (rejected). This 
narration is authenticated by Imam Bukhari, Baghwi, Ibn Khuzaymah, and Ibn 
Taymiyyah etc. The Jumhoor of Muhadditheen has authenticated it. See Noorul Ainain

Mahmood narrated to us: Ibn Uliyyah said: Khalid 
informed us, "Verily Abu Qilabah used to do rata yadain 
whenever he used to go to ruku' and rise up from ruku. 
And when he used to prostrate, he would begin with his 
knees, and when he used to rise, he used to rest on his 
hands, and have some rest in the first rakah, and then he 
used to stand up, He mentioned it from Maalik bin 
Huwairath. 

It's Da'eef. 

Note: If Mahmood here means, Mahmood bin Ghailaan, then its Sanad is Sahih, and if 
it is Mahmood bin Ishaaq al-Khazaa'l, then its sanad is Munqata'. Due to this 
uncertainty, I have deemed this Hadith to be Da'eef. Wallahu a'lam.

Abdullah bin Muhammad informed us, Abu Amir informed 
us, Ibraheem bin Tahmaan narrated to us, from Abu 
Zubair, from Tawoos, Verily, Whenever Ibn Abbas used to 
stand for Prayer, He used to do rafa yadain up to his ears, 
when he used to stand up straight from ruku' He would do 
the same. 

It is Sahih. 

The sanad of this Hadith is weak due to the Tadlees of Abu Zaubair, but this hadith 
becomes authentic in the light of Shawahid.

This narration is Sahih with this Matn. 

Due to Isma'eel bin Ayyash being narrating this hadith from non-Syrian people, this 
Isnad is Weak (the narrations of Isma'eel from non-syrians is considered weak), but its 
Matn has authentic Shawahid. See Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah (344/1). 

Note: In the Indian Nuskha after "Muhammad bin Maqatil", it says "Akhbarna 'Aafiaa", 
which is a mistake; the correct wording is "Akhbarna Abdullah" as is written in the real 
Zaahiriya Nuskha.

It is Sahih. This narration is present in Sunan abu Dawud with the sanad of Imam Malik. 

Note: In the Indian Nukha, and some other Nuskhas, after "Haddathana Isma'eel", 
"Haddathana Maalik" has been dropped, while this is present in the real ancient nuskha

that: "Everything has an adornment, and the adornment of 
prayer is that whenever you say Takbeer, raise both your 
hands, and when you bow for ruku', and when you rise up 
from ruku' (you do the same)." 

Its Isnad is Sahih. 

Note # 1 : In the Indian Nuskha, "Akhbarna Abdullah bin Ajlaan" is written, which is a 
mistake. In the the Zahiriya Nuskha, after Muhammad bin Maqatil, It says, "Akhbarna 
Abdullah Akhbarna Ibn Ajlaan" and this is correct. 

Note # 2: If Muhammad bin Ajlaan affirms his hearing, then he is a Sahihul Hadith. The 
Jumhoor of Muhadditheen have declared him Siqqah and Truthful. The claim of his 
Ikhtilaat on this narration is not Sahih.

Wakee' said: from Al-A'mash, from Ibraheem (al-Nakh'ai), 
that this Hadith of Waa'il bin Hujr was mentioned to 
Ibraheem al-Nakh'ai, (which says that) "Verily prophet 
(peace be upon him) used to do rafa yadain when doing 
ruku' and when going to sujud (meaning after standing 
from ruku)" 
Ibraheem said: It may be that, he did it only one time. (2) 

And it is (only) his presumption that he (pbuh) may have 
done it once. Whereas, Waa'il bin Hujr has mentioned, 
that he has seen the prophet and his companions many 
times doing rafa yadain. Waa'il bin Hujr is not in need of 
the presumptions and opinions of people, because he, 
seeing from his own eyes, is far better than the 
assumption of another person. 

(2): It is Da'eef. 

This narration was not found with the linked chain 

Secondly: A'mash is a Mudallis, and the narrations of a Mudallis in other than Sahihain, 
which are narrated form 'An, are Da'eef. See: Khazain al-Sunan (Vol 1 , Pg 1) by 
Sarfaraz Safdar Deobandi, and other common books of Usui al-Hadith.

Imam Bukhari said: 

And Zaidah (bin Qudamah) mentioned and said: Aasim 
narrated to us, My Father (Kulaib al-Jarmi) narrated to us, 
Verily Waa'il bin Hujr informed him, and said: "I said, I will 
look at the prayer of the prophet, (to know) how he prays? 
So he said the takbeer and raised his hands (when he 
intended to bow, he raised his hands), then when he 
raised his head (from ruku), he did rafa yadain likewise. 
Then after that, I came (to madinah) in the winter. People 
had blankets over them, their hands were moving (in doing 
rafa yadain) from beneath their blankets." (1) 

This is Waa'il (bin Hujr), who has described in his hadith 
that he has seen the prophet and his companions doing 
rafa yadain one after another.

Whoever assumes that rata yadain is a Bid'ah, then verily,

them, and the scholars of Hijaaz, Madinah, Makkah, a vast 
majority of Iraaq, Shaam, Yemen, and Kharasan, including 
Imam Ibn al-Mubarak. Infact the students of our teachers-

bin Uthman, Yahya bin Yahya, Sadqa, Ishaaq bin

rafa yadain), except the people of Rai (opinion). 

Sufyan Ath-Thawri, Wakee' and some Kufis did not used 
to do rafa yadain (2). 

And they (wakee' and sufyan) have (also) narrated many 
ahadeeth (in the proof of rafa yadain), and they never 
stopped anyone from doing rafa yadain. And if it was not 
true, then they wouldn't have mentioned these ahadeeth, 
because no one should attribute a thing on prophet which 
he didn't say.

Imam Bukhari said: 

What is preserved is that, which is narrated from 
Ubaidullah, Ayyub (al-Sakhtiyani), Maalik (bin Anas), Ibn 
Juraij, and Layth (bin Sa'd); the people of Hijaz, and the 
vast majority of the people of Iraaq has narrated from 
Naafi', from Ibn Umar that: (they) used to do rafa yadain 
before and after ruku', and if the narration of Al-Umri from 
Naafi', from Ibn Umar, is Sahih, then it is not against the 
first hadith. 

Because he said: "When he raised his head from ruku", 
and if it would've been proven, then we have used both of 
them. And this is not a kind of difference, in which one 
narrator would oppose the other (openly), because this is 
an addition to the action. And the addition (of a Siqqah 
narrator) is acceptable if it gets proven.

It is Da'eef. 

Its Narrator, Muhammad bin Abdurrehman ibn Abi Laila, according to the majority of 
Muhadditheen is weak. 

Note: The same narration in Musannaf ibn Abi Shaibah is also weak due to the Ikhtalat 
of the narrator, "Ataa bin al-Sa'ib". See: Al-Kawakib al-Nirat by Ibn al-Kayal and

AN bin Mashar, and al-Muharbi has narrated it (the above 
hadith) (with the sanad) from Ibn Abi Laila, from Al- 
Hakam, from Miqsam, from Ibn Abbas, from the prophet 
(peace be upon him). 

Shu'bah said: Al-Hakam did not hear any hadith from 
Miqsam except four times, and this hadith is not among 
them. 

And this (narration) is not preserved from the prophet 
(peace be upon him), because the students of Naafi' have 
opposed (Ibn Abi Laila), and the narration of al-Hakam 
from Miqsam is Mursal (meaning Munqata')

Tawoos, Abu Hamza and Ataa (bin Abi Ribaa) have 
narrated that they have seen Abdullah bin Umar doing rata 
yadain during ruku' and after raising his head after ruku'. 

Even if (for the sake of argument) the Hadith of Ibn Abi 
Laila was authentic, that hands should be raised only in 
seven places, but in the hadith of Wakee', these words 
that hands should not raised except in seven places, are 
not there. Thus rafa yadain should be done in these 
places, and it should also be done during ruku' and after 
raising the head from ruku', so that all the ahadeeth can 
be followed, and this is not a contradiction. 
And these (Munkireen-e-Rafa Yadain) people say that rafa 
yadain should be done in the takbeerat of Eid ul-Fitr and 
Eid ul-Adha, and these are fourteen takbeeraat in their 
saying. 

And these (takbeerat) are not (included) in the hadith of 
Ibn Abi Laila, and this is a proof that they (Kufis) did not 
believe in the hadith of Ibn abi Laila, and according to 

104 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

some kufis, rata yadain should (also) be done in the 
takbeeraat of funeral prayer, and these are four 
(aaditional) takbeers. And all these (Takbeerat) are an 
addition to the hadith of Ibn Abi Laila. 

And it is narrated from the prophet (peace be upon him) 
through many chains that, he (also) used to do rafa yadain 
except these seven places. 



Hadith # 71 

Moosa bin Isma'eel narrated to us, Hammad bin Salamah 
narrated to us, from Thabit, from Anas (bin Malik radiallah

raise his hands in (the prayer of) Istisqaa (asking for rain).

Musaddad narrated to us, Abu Awanah narrated to us, 
from Samaak bin Harb, from Ikrimah, from Aisha, He 
(Ikrimah) affirmed for sure that he heard it from her (Aisha) 
that She saw the prophet (peace be upon him) making 
dua while raising his hands, he was saying: "(O Allah!) I 
am (only) a human, so don't punish me, whoever among 
the believers is hurt, or has been insulted by me, then 
don't punish me for it. 

Its Isnad is Da'eef. 

Imam Bukhari has also narrated it in Al-Adab al-Mufrad from Musaddad. 

The Narration of Samaak from Ikrimah is always Da'eef. See: Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb 
etc. 

Afaan has done Mutabi'at of Musaddad in Musnad Ahmed (258/6) 

Note: This narration is present in Sahih Muslim with this meaning without the phrase 
saying that, "He (pbuh) was raising his hands"

Abul-Nu'man narrated to us, Hammad bin Zayd narrated 
to us, Hajjaj al-Sawwaf narrated to us, from Abul-Zubair, 
from Jaabir bin Abdullah, Verily Tufail bin Umro said to the 
prophet (peace be upon him): Do you need a fort, and the 
power of the fort of Doos (a tribe). The Apostle of Allah 
(peace be upon him) declined this offer, because whatever 
Allah has prepared for the Ansaar (is better than this). 
Tufail and a man from his Tribe migrated together (with 
the prophet to Madinah). Then that man got sick, so he 
took hold of an iron head of an arrow and cut his finger- 
joints and then he died. Tufail then saw him in a dream 
and said: What treatment did your Allah accord to you? He 
replied. Allah granted me pardon for my migration to the 
Apostle (may peace be upon him): He (Tufail) again said: 
What is this that I see you wrapping up your hands? He 
replied: I was told (by Allah): We would not set right 
anything of yours which you damaged yourself. Tufail 
narrated this (dream) to the Messenger of Allah (peace be 
upon him). Upon this he prayed: O Allah! Grant pardon 
even to his hands, and raised his hands. 

It is Sahih.

Imam Ibn Hibban (Al-lhsaan 3740), Haakim (488/1), and Dhahabi have graded it Sahih.

she said, Certainly he beats me, so the messenger of 
Allah (pace be upon him) raised his hands and prayed (to 
Allah) saying, "O Allah! Punish Al-Waleed" 

Its Isnad is Hasan. 

Abu Maryam al-Saqfi is declared to be siqqah by Ibn Hlbban and Dhahabi, therefore, 
his hadith doesn't fall from the level of Hasan.

informed us, from Humaid (al-Taweel), from Anas (bin

Malik), he said: One year when the rain stopped, a man 
from the Muslims came to the prophet (peace be upon 
him) during the day of Jumuah (Friday) and said: "O 
Messenger of Allah! Rain has stopped, and property (and 
catties) are dieing, so he (peace be upon him) raised both 
his hands, no cloud could be seen in the sky, so he raised 
his hands until I saw the whiteness of his armpits. He was 
asking for rain from Allah, we didn't finish the Jumuah (yet) 
that (it rained very hard) the people, instead of going their 
houses, went to the nearby house, for shelter until the next 
Friday came (and it was still raining). That man said: "O 
Messenger of Allah! Houses have broken down, and the 
travels of travellers have stopped (meaning: Pray to stop 
the rain), then the prophet smiled on the early/quick 
cloyingness of Bani Adam and said: "O Allah send it (the 
rain) away from us, and don't send it on us", then the 
clouds went away from Madinah. 

It is Sahih. 

Imam Ibn Khuzaymah (1789) has declared it Sahih. It has many shawahid in Sahih 
Bukhari (933) and Sahih Muslim (897). Therefore, the "An-ana" of Humaid at-Taweel 
here, is not harmful.

against the rata yadain of the beginning of prayer. 

And Anas has also narrated that the messenger of Allah

And those who say that Prophet (peace be upon him) 
used to raise his hands when he used to go to ruku' and 
when he used to raise his head from ruku', and on this, the 
words that were added by Abu Humaid among the ten 
companions that, when the prophet (peace be upon him) 



120 



The Most Authentic Nuskha of Maktabah Zaahiriya Translated by: Raza Hassan 

used to stand up after two sujud (rakahs) he used to raise 
his hands. All of this is Sahih, because they only didn't 
informed about one prayer (for ex: One rakah of witr), so 
that they could be considered discrepant on this prayer, 
therefore, there is no difference of opinion on this. Some 
(who heard more words or saw more actions) added on (to 
the narrations of) some; and according to the scolars, the 
addition (of a siqqah) is acceptable. 

And (the narration) that Abu Bakr bin Ayyash has narrated 
from Husain, from Mujahid that, "I didn't see Ibn Umar 
doing rafa yadain in prayer except in the first Takbeer" 
then in this (narration), the opposition (of Abu Bakr bin 
Ayyash) from Mujahid is present. (1) 

Wakee' has narrated form Rabee' bin Sabeeh' that: "I 
have seen Mujahid doing rafa yadain when he used to do 
ruku, and when he used to raise his head from ruku'. (2) 

And Jareer has narrated from Layth (bin abi Slaeem), and 
he has narrated from Mujahid that, "he used to do rafa 
yadain", and according to the scholars this is preserved. 
(3) 

Sadqa (bin al-Fadhal) said: One who narrated this hadith 
from Mujahid from Ibn Umar that, he did not used to do 
rafa yadain except in the first Takbeer, (then) Its narrator 
(Abu Bakr bin Ayyash) had (his memory) deteriorated at

(Imam Bukhari said) And the Hadith of the prophet (peace 
be upon him) is more authentic. 

(1): Its Isnad is Sahih. 

Two prostrations mean "Two Rakahs", (See Hadith # 1 ) and these two rakahs are the 
second and the third ones. Therefore, from this Narration we came to know that when 
Anas used to stand up after two rakahs he used to raise his hands. From this Tatbeeq 
(Adjustage) there remains no contradiction between the Marfoo' Ahadeeth and this 
Athar. Doing Tatbeeq in the Marfoo' Ahadeeth and the narrations of Sahaba is correct.

from Abdul Kareem, from Mujahid, he said: "There is no 
one after the Prophet (peace be upon him), except that his 
saying can be accepted and can be rejected." (meaning: 
Every saying of the prophet (peace be upon him) will be 
followed)) 

It is Da'eef.

Even though in this Isnad, the" An-ana" of Sufyan bin Uyainah is present, but Ibn Abi 
Najeeh has narrated the same narration from Mujahid [ref: Al-Ahkaam la Ibn Hazam 
157/1]. The generality of Quran-o-Sunnah and Athaar-e-Salaf is also in accordance with 
it. 



Hadith # 92 






Fudaik bin Suleman Abu Eesa narrated to us, he said: I 
asked Al-Awzaa'l, I said: "O Abu Umro! What do you say 
about doing rata yadain with every Takbeer when one is 
standing in the prayer? He said: This is the first 
Amar/ Action. (Meaning this is the action of our Salaf from 
back then) 

And Awzaa'l was asked about Eeman (Faith), and I was 
listening, so he said: "Eeman increases and decreases so 
whoever thinks that Eeman doesn't increase or decrease 
then that person is a Bid'ati (Innovator), stay away from 
him."

It is Hasan. 

Note: What is meant by this saying of Imam Awzaa'l: "This is the first action" is that, it 
is the action from the time or era before. From this we came to know that, from the 
period of the prophet (peace be upon him) to the period of Imam Awzaa'l, the practice 
of rafa yadain had been acted upon. What is meant by "Every Takbeer" is that of the 
starting of prayer, Takbeer of ruku, and the rafa yadain of funerals. 



Hadith # 93 

Muhammad bin 'ArArah narrated to us, Jareer bin Haazim 
narrated to us, he said: I heard Naafi', he said: "Ibn Umar 
used to raise his hands whenever he said takbeer on 
Funeral. 



Its Isnad is Sahih, This narration is also narrated as a Marfoo' narration. (Nasb ur-

Muhammad bin Jaabir has opposed (Sufyan Thawri), from 
Hammad, from Ibraheem, from Alqamah, from Abdullah, 
Verily Abu Bakr and Umar (did not used to do rafa yadain) 

This narration is very weak. 

Its Narrator Muhammad bin Jaabir according to the Jumhoor is Da'eef. His memory 
deteriorated at the end of his life. This Narration of Muhammad bin Jaabir has been 
declared to be Munkar by the Imam of Ahle-Sunnat Ahmed bin Hanbal, and rejected 
this narration very strictly (Kitab al-lllal, Vol 1, Pg 144). 



Imam Bukhari said: 

The Hadith of Ath-Thawri is more authentic according to 
the people of Knowledge (than the Hadith of Muhammad 
bin Jaabir who is Da'eef), Moreover, It is narrated from 
Umar with several chains that the Prophet (peace be upon 
him) did rafa yadain.

yadain in prayer, (Imam Bukhari said) I said to him: "Did 
Sufyan (bin Uyainah) do rata yadain? He said: Yes" 

Ahmed bin Hanbal said: I saw Ma'tamar, Yahya bin

heads after ruku'.
